I saw these several spots (4 ou 5).
My question wasn't if it's hard or, not (that's my problem) but if there's a
chance if i do it ,to commit it
(or if there a good reason to limite size, like memory comsuption , etc ...)

No because that's not tha t i want, i dont create vertex but just only snap
it on formula. Once again this is my problem.
You need to find a way to replace those

Thank you for this course of Information Theory ;-)
